My ps3 super slim stopped working suddenly. It was working fine with no issues, but one day it just refused to turn on . Not even the red LED glows now. I tested the PSU following this video Ps3 Super slim .I confirm PSU is working well . So I am not sure what has gone wrong. Any help is appreciated. Following are the things I tried till now:

1.Replaced the Power/Eject ribbon with new one.

2.Opened the PS3 super slim to check if any thing burnt out, Everything looks fine.

3.Tested the PSU and it is working fine , the out put voltages are perfect as per the video mentioned above in the description.

You might want to check the power supply and make sure it is actually plugged in instead of loose. It is possible that it was in the middle of a software update where it is rewriting the system with the updated code so try and remember if there had been any power outages around the time it stopped working. I would just contact PS3 support and take it from there. You may be able to get it replaced or fixed for free if the warranty is still valid. I hope this helps!

  • Power supply is good , I even tested the output of the power supply with multimeter . The output voltages matches the voltage specified by Sony .
